The tradition of planting corn is that in the olden days when our ancestors planted corn, before they plant corn they have to watch at the moon. When it is quarter moon it is a good time to plant corn in your farm. So if you plant corn when the moon is not in quarter you will not have a good production. When preparing the piece of land that you will plant your corn our ancestors did not do slash and burn they do" Mata Ambre" means that they cut down the trees were they will plant their corn and they do not burn the trees that are already cut in the land because in tradition/culture if you burn the land they say it takes away the good source of nutrients that is inside the soil and at the end you will not have a good production. Also in the culture only the men go to plant corn besides that the women stay to cook food for their husbands. As well the men do not eat before they go to plant corn. So at the end of there plantation they do a short refection or prayer to ask god to send rain.
